be an interesting week ahead. president obama is in henderson nevada where he's practicing for the next couple of days. both the president and mitt romney's camps are trying to lower expectations so that if someone does particularly well, it will be an apparent surprise. we heard over the weekend that mitt romney is working on some hard-hitting one-liners because he has that well-timed sense of humor thing. here's the president in response to that news. >> i know folks in the media are speculating already on who's going to have the best zingers. governor romney is a good debater. >> not so sure if he's a good zinger. the presidential last debate was back in 2008. he and mitt romney have never gone head to head. romney does need a win to make this a game changer. the match-up will be wednesday night in denver and of course, we know that you'll be tuned in right here to current tv tv for all of our pre and post-debate coverage. 83% of respondents to a new abc news poll said they're interested in the debates as well. so yo

for romney. just a few weeks ago, it kind of evened up and just in the last couple of weeks, it has -- you know, not only is president obama pulling ahead, but senate candidates, a lot of people thought no chance. tammy baldwin, clair mccastle, go down the line and now they are not talking so much about the republicans winning back the senate but in some circles, i heard talk of democrats taking back the house. >> not going to take back the house. let's look. so we had the primaries at the beginning of the year. that was about a whole host of candidates fighting it out between themselves. romney was really not ahead during the summer. he was making this race tighter. that's what happens over the course of the summer. then have you conventions where both parties get to see. romney -- >> virtually no bump in the obama -- got a huge bump. >> do you think he's going to get a bump when you have a democratic convention that starts basically hours afterwards? i don't know if bumps exist anymore. look to the bumps -- >> for obama though. >> but that bump is already coming down. and look at the bum
goodman. with less than five weeks before the general election, president obama and republican presidential nominee mitt romney squared off in their first presidential debate wednesday in denver, colorado. for 90 minutes, the candidates faced off over taxes, unemployment, economic regulations, social security, health care, education, partisan gridlock and other domestic issues. romney repeatedly attacked obama's record, often putting the president on the defensive. many supporters of obama have expressed surprise that he never mentioned several of romney's potential weak spots, including his record as the private equity firm bain capital. also his vast personal wealth and offshore investments, and his recent remark that 47% of americans are government dependents. some domestic issues went virtually unmentioned wednesday night, including immigration policy, global warming, gun control, incarceration rates, and poverty. some key voices were shut out the conversation, including those of third-party presidential candidates. as obama and romney were facing off at the university of d

and death squad leaders coming to this country. for instance, last week, obama refused to extradite an ex- dictator of libya wanted by the bolivian people because of how many people he killed. obama refused to extradite him. and there was a ex-mexican president who killed a bunch of his own people in the 1990's, and he is now living here, like so many other dictators, and they are refusing for him to be tried for his crimes either.

, as barack obama learned. i would let joe biden do as much stocking. you never know when he's going to stuff his foot in his mouth. he has done it multiple times over the last few weeks. gerri: romney's court in that debate on issues that he really wanted to talk about, jobs and the deficit. my understanding is that you just looked at this today and found obama scored 20 on the deficit and romney scored 41. when the team to jobs, 24357. run the way out ahead. >> obama keeps saying, romney's test plan will go below this $5 trillion : the budget. the other line, i have this $4 trillion plan. there is no plan. i have to blame people in the media. they are correctly pressing romney to be more specific about his plans, but i don't think that the press has been even handed in asking barack obama about his plan. you keep saying have a $4 trillion plant. i have not seen it. >> here is another issue along those lines. the president has gone so negative year. calling romney a liar which is something you don't typically do. >> i live in virginia, so we are just saturated. everytime you turn of the tv.
will turn it on like anything you have ever seen for the next five weeks. he will be the best president in history. host:next is ann, a president obama supporter. caller: good morning. i think exactly the opposite. i think mitt romney looked almost manic and his appearance. i have never seen him flailing his arms around. he told so many lies. he completely turned around all of the things he has been running on the for the past 18 months. he even through the tax policy away. he just changed everything. it was really unbelievable. i think many people looked at him being more aggressive. that is what they were rewarding. once people started paying attention to exactly why he said, they would see that his -- that he told so many lies and distorted what he was trying to say. i think the president look very presidential. he was not aggressive. he explained exactly what he wanted to say. i thought the whole purpose of the debate was for each one to explain what their policy was. romney just completely changed. that is what was so -- i guess it is not so surprising, because that is what he has
just draw a new one. well, he appears to be doing just that. the republican party might hate obama enough and be frus stratr enough to let him wink and do more. if so he faces something far more challenging than a good debate never the last weeks of the campaign. he faces a moderate republican. let's get started. -- captions by vitac -- www.vitac.com >>> america's biggest corporations have a unique per expect tifb on the economy. i recently had an opportunity to talk to the heads of three very different, very successful businesses if finance, in manufacturing, and in technology. when i chaired the panel for the clinton global initiative. they are lloyd blankfein the chairman and ce o o of goldman sachs. andrew live russ, the chairman and ceo of dow chemical and john chambers the chair manned and ceo of cisco. the conversation was fascinating. listen in. >>> lloyd, let me start with you. when you look at the global economy, right now, you know, what is it, four years after the crash, what does it look like to you? >> well, we're definitely in a m muddle-through phase, slow growth, v
, it will be seen as the first step for the obama team to get its footing back. in the world we live in now, where everything is analyzed instantaneously, even before it happens, i think it is a meaningful event next week. >> it is important until the next presidential debate and then it becomes fairly irrelevant. >> it is important until it is over. >> they should have a disclaimer -- this debate is for entertainment purposes only. >> chicago is saying, thank god we have biden to pick us up after last night. [laughter] >> if first impressions are the most important and if the average american really tuned in for the first time, would that suggest that the next two presidential debates are less important? what is your opinion on how much the second and third presidential debates can matter? >> i think they are still very significant. it seems like ancient history now, but reagan's first debate against mondale did not go well and he turned it around in the second debate. what everybody wanted to happen, in terms of the voters, they wanted to reelect reagan because things were going well. they breat
